Chilivård with Epsom Salt and Cave man's Bat Guano!

Some have asked me how and when I give my chiliplantor Epsom Salt. Today it was time for chilivård and then I give them both the Epsom Salt and Cave man's Bat Guano fertilizer.

I give my larger plants, those who stand in 4 – 25 liter pots Epsom Salt and Guano was 14 day. Epsom Epsom Salt to make plants grow and become more powerful, enhances chlorophyll production, improves the absorption of phosphorus and nitrogen. And it seem right, some who did not receive this treatment is not as big and strong.

Bat guano is a high-grade fertilizers containing high concentrations of nitrogen and phosphorus important microber. It is ideal for plant growth and provides a natural protection against disease. Bat guano is a completely natural manure that it is easier for plants to take up. It also has a soil-enhancing impact as microlivet benefit, the symbiosis between the roots, the mycelium and bacteria to be improved. The plant's ability to take up nutrients in the Earth increases thereby.

When I water the plants as usual I have liquid nutrients in the water, but only a 1/4 part of what is recommended, there is no need to overfeed chili because they still can't take large amounts of nutrients at once.

      You do not need watering every day without lifting of the pots and know whether water is needed. When watering so have always nourished in the water. I sprinkle out Bat Guano on Earth and stir a bit and hoses down the.

          If necessary, depends a lot on the soil in the pots. Many nutrients leached out pretty fast at the indoor cultivation. I mix about. 1 – 3 tbsp Epsom salts in the soil at retraining to my final pots. You can also use the Dolomite lime that contains 12% magnesium but it must offtast be purchased in as large packs. I think it works fine then there are also those who doubt its effectiveness but it may be for them.

          1 – 2 teaspoon Epsom salts can Sprinkle onto the Earth and watering down to those already planted. Repeat 2 times during the growing season.

    Hi and thanks for the reply!
    I do this with but complements with Bat Guano if I notice that knoppningen not get started properly. Seems to work but I wonder if it helps the flowers fall off to a greater extent. Seedlings that I let remain in smaller pots also seems to lose the flowers when they produced a number of fruits.

    Water and fertilize regularly with otherwise chilifokus type with smaller amounts of each watering.
